There are two very nice profiles on a website called Brooklyn Fights on one of the Beltway's top trainers -- Calvin Ford of the Upton Boxing Gym in Baltimore, MD -- and one of the Beltway's top boxers, Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed.
Xavier Porter writes solid pieces on both men and their continuing contributions to the Beltway scene. Thank you so much, Xavier!
